I am hoping to gain some clarity here about posting on the Medium.com. I realize that if I am to submit my work to an agent or editor then I should NOT post it to my Medium account. That being said I still have a few questions. I am going to ramble a bit under the question- just my way of expanding on the question. Would posting works that I do not plan to ever submit (personal naaratives, non-fic maybe some flash fiction) to my Medium account help or hurt me if an agent or editor would happen to search my name? I usually keep my Medium account more casual and don't worry to much about the details. This makes it easier to "publish" without being overly concerned with the outcome. But now wonder if those simple posts would be viewed as a negative by an agent or editor. I don't want to be "paralizedby perfection" but I am starting to feel that if I post to my medium account then I should at least assume it might be judged against me someday. Perhaps I should just change my name to a pen name and remove all doubt. but then again, if I post quality content to my Medium account then it could be seen as a positve as well making it easier to be found (or discovered in the realm of fantasy thoughts) It is not my intention to spend any amount of time "grooming" my medium account for the perfect stories but still I wanted to ask the community about this. I have heard argument on both sides of the coin about this on various medium accounts. Some say post daily and do not worry about perfection while other say think of quality over quantity. what do you all think? Personally I am leaning twords only posting something I am proud on under my real name and perhaps having a pen name to test out more questionable writings.
